Invicta, Pro Diver, Men's Watch, Stainless Steel and Yellow Gold Plated Case, Stainless Steel and Yellow Gold Plated Bracelet, Mechanical Automatic (Self-Winding), 8928C
Classic styling and high performance add up to an outstanding sport watch for your land or sea adventures. This two-tone automatic watch, from Invicta's Pro Diver series, places a large round stainless steel case on a robust steel bracelet with gold-plated center links. The electric blue dial is designed for quick and easy read-off, even in low light conditions. It offers three-hand function with luminous hands and markers and a magnified date display at the three o'clock position. The detailed hands, in Mercedes, sword, and breguet-style logo shapes, add a note of distinction. The dial is capped with a resilient mineral crystal and framed by a blue unidirectional rotating steel bezel with goldtone markings and coin edge detailing. This watch is driven by a Japanese automatic movement, which is visible through the see-through skeleton case back. It is rated water resistant to a full 200 meters.
Pro Diver Collection
Plunge into any horizon using the steadfast guidance of the Invicta Pro Diver. Stylishly classic, internal workings are forged with variations of either Swiss chronograph or 21-jewel automatic movements and willingly navigate in depths up to 300 meters. Built with confident prowess, the fortitude with which these timepieces function makes the Pro Diver the quintessential in performance.
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).

But in spite of that, indeed partially as a consequence of that, this is a very handsome, solid watch. It's not some quartz-powered, pot-metal knockoff. Notably, it is powered by the well-regarded, mid-range Seiko NH35A automatic watch movement. It has a solid reputation for reliability and accuracy. It features manual winding and hacking, both nice upgrades from the entry level Seiko 5 field watch I bought for about the same price. This quality movement is rarely found on time pieces retailing for less than $300.
The magnified date complication is nicely executed and the iridescent blue dial plays off the light beautifully. The uni-directional bezel is a marvel of precision. 120 clicks - not one more or one less - will bring it precisely back to the 12 o'clock position. An easy to overlook feature is the quick set date change, which means you don't have to move the hour hand twice around the dial to advance the date. The trick is to be aware that the screw down crown has three distinct detents. The first allows hand-winding of the main spring. The third is for setting the time. But there's a middle setting that's easy to miss if you don't know it's there. It allows you to change the date with a counter-clockwise twist.
One other note about the crown. This is a diver's watch and in order to achieve that 200m water resistance rating, the crown stem has internal seals that engage only when the crown is fully screwed down. Hence the term "screw down crown". This feature is standard for just about every true diver's watch on the market. I'm noticing that some of the less favorable Amazon user reviews complain of water infiltration, sometimes with little more than splashing around in shallow water. Given the way this watch is built and my own experience with it (showering daily, fresh and salt water swimming), that's frankly difficult to believe. *Unless* the user neglects to screw that crown all the way in. In which case water will most definitely penetrate the case. For non-divers, that extra step might seem like a needless complication for an everyday watch. Which is a fair concern. If you think that level of user engagement will be too much for you, my advice is twofold: 1) you'll be much happier with a non-diver mechanical watch and 2) don't ever buy a convertible.
And finally there's the transparent exhibition case back. allowing you to see the inside of that intricate, jeweled mechanism. An honest to gosh mechanical movement is a rarity in modern, mass market wrist watches. Position that engraved rotor until you can see a tiny gear that's a blur of movement. Look closer and you'll see it's rapidly switching rotational direction. That's the balance wheel. It incrementally apportions the stored tension on the main spring though the escapement to the rest of the clock train; running the hour, minute and second hands, as well as the date complication. Invicta allows the owner the sublime pleasure of viewing that exquisite mechanism beating away - hour after hour, day after day, year after year.
Circling back to my initial point: you need to understand that watch aficionados sneer at this Invicta because it's such an obvious copy of the Rolex. And to be fair, they probably have a point that if you're going to hew this closely to the Submariner format, it would have been nice if Invicta had tossed in a little design variation just to show some semblance of originality.
But all that is largely irrelevant if you're buying this watch to please yourself. Because here's the thing: this is a legitimately attractive, high quality wrist watch. Most of us - myself included - will never be able to afford a Rolex. But the Invicta gives me a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction owning and wearing a fine mechanical timepiece. If you're on a budget and out to impress your affluent watch snob friends, this isn't the watch for you. But if you're on a budget and out to impress yourself, this thing is a bargain.
1. There is no battery. This is important because in order to keep the time, you MUST wear the watch on a daily basis. What does this mean? Basically, if you go a couple days without the watch on your arm, or moving, the gears will stop ticking the watch. Wearing this watch on your arm and moving it doing normal every day things is what powers this watch. If you look at the back of the watch you will see the dial move if you shift/rotate the watch. This is the watch powering itself. It's great because you never have to worry about the battery dying. However, if you do not wear watches often, it will constantly lose time because you are not "exercising" your watch.
2. The dial on the side is how you set the watch. You have to unscrew it until the dial pops out. After that you need to gently pull on the dial to change the date, pull again to change the time. When you are finished making changes you must push the dial into the watch (two clicks), and turn in a clockwise rotation until the dial can be spun/tightened no longer. Do not over tighten the watch as you could cause damage to the gears internal to the watch. Getting the dial tight again may take a second or two to get used to because you need to be pushing/turning the dial to tighten it back into the watch.
Many people are complaining about the watch taking in moisture/water. This is because they are NOT tightening the dial as mentioned in #2. If your dial is not tight, of course water is going to get into and damage your watch.
Hope this was helpful for the folks not familiar with this type of watch.

Now,of the three I own, this is the best yet for accuracy. Over the past 27 hours it has run at +1.8 seconds a day. I own lots of watches, around 10 autos, including Rolex, Tudor and Longines. This is the second best of the lot, behind only the Tudor. At this price, this is remarkable.
It is obviously not the same build quality as those very expensive watches. But that is like comparing a Citroën to a Ferrari. This watch was well under £100! An absolute bargain.
It has a Seiko NH35 movement. In house Seiko produce these as the 4R35. This movement is found in watches at 3 to 5 times the price of this. It is a hackable movement. What is not to like?
Other people have complained about Invicta's quality control. But I have 3,and have had no problems. Maybe I have just been lucky.
My advice would be to buy one if you fancy one. Take it to a watchmaker to adjust the bracelet (they are massive). Don't try to adjust it yourself, it's awkward, pay a few pounds. Then wear it and see if anything goes wrong. If something is going to go wrong it is likely to be soon or not at all. Because Seiko movements are famously robust. If something goes wrong early, return it to Amazon for a refund. But, like I say, I now have 3,and have had no problems at all.
APPEARANCE & CONSTRUCTION
I love the colour scheme of this watch, my previous watches are a bit dull in comparison! The strap is polished stainless steel with gold-coloured plated stainless steel centre links. The bezel is also of stainless steel construction which is plated in blue and gold, with a luminous notch at the 12 o'clock position. The watch face is blue plated, with luminous dots for each clock position and surrounded in gold plating. The company logo is embossed under the twelve o'clock position and a 31 day calendar features in the standard 3 o'clock position. The hands are gold-coloured plated stainless steel with luminous strips, except for the second hand which just has a dot at the end with the company logo on the opposite end. The face is of mineral construction and has a small magnifying glass for the date. The colouring really is beautiful and makes the watch look very expensive.
On the side of the watch body is a knurled winder which is gold-coloured stainless steel, and screwed into the body to create a tight seal. This must be done to maintain the 200M water resistance. After unscrewing the winder, it can be turned clockwise to wind up the mechanism, and pulling out one click allows you to set the time and date.
A very minor criticism is on the watch body surface. All surfaces are highly polished except for where the strap is pinned to the body. This is very clear in one of my images. This looks to be a feature of the watch based on the advert pictures, but I feel this stands out a little bit, but this is personal taste.
This watch is an automatic movement which means no batteries! The wind up mechanism can be kept running two ways: the first is via hand movement through everyday usage, and the second way is via the winder as mentioned above. I find that if I'm wearing this watch daily I do not need to wind it, but if I'm not going to wear the watch on a given day, I tend to give it a wind up when taking it off. If I do not do this, then the watch will require winding and resetting after ~24 hours of no use. If you have a watch winder, then no big deal, but I do not.
The watch comes with a 2 year warranty from the manufacturer which can be increased by an additional year once you've registered the product after purchase using the supplied paperwork. You will need to supply the serial number which is etched on the underside of the watch body.
The strip provided was massive for my small wrists! Luckily, I own a tool which can push the pins out and shorten the strap length to my liking. If you don't own such a tool (they can be found on here for reasonable price) then you can always get any good watch shop to adjust for you for a small fee.
I bought this watch back in July 2018 and at the time of writing (December 2018) I have had zero issues with this watch. I've worn it out in the rain, but never in the shower, and have had no issues with the watch face fogging/misting up when the winder has been screwed into the watch body securely. The surface of the locking mechanism is showing small signs of wear but this is due to where my wrist naturally sits when using a computer etc. and when I put my watch down when I take it off. Other than that, the watch is in excellent condition! I have accidentally knocked the watch face against things and there's no observable damage. I can highly recommend this affordable watch for daily use!
As a homage to the Rolex submariner, it's absolutely exquisite. I can safely say that my next watch may also be an Invicta. My housemate genuinely thought I'd bought the submariner and he had to Google what the difference was in terms of looks.
As for quality, it's solid. Everything is smooth and crisp, and taking two links out to fit my wrist was straightforward, even as I recoiled in horror at the prospect of scratching it. The Invicta warranty displays their confidence at their built quality also.
Thoroughly over the moon with my new diving watch. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm slightly scared to wear it outside - but then why buy it at all eh. 5/5.
Partiamo subito con la nota dolente/positiva. E' molto simile al Rolex Submarine. Questo sinceramente non lo trovo un problema, nel senso che i Diver sono tutti fatti così più o meno, l'aspetto è sempre quello. I colori rispetto al Rolex sono anche leggermente diversi volendo, e le scritte invicta non si nascondono quindi non vuole essere una copia spudorata. Ergo diciamo che può essere scambiato per un rolex da lontano solo ad un occhio inesperto, quindi non pensate di prenderlo con l'idea di voler ingannare tutti. Tecnicamente si tratta di un "hommage" e non di una copia, e ha comunque del carattere proprio, quindi per i "puristi" non è nemmeno troppo un problema. E' davvero bello.
Prima di parlare del resto dico 2 cose sul meccanismo: è molto preciso. Perde circa 2 secondi al giorno, cosa che sarebbe accettabile anche per un automatico da 1000 euro, figuriamoci per uno da 80 euro come questo. Davvero sbalordito dalla precisione di questo meccanismo giapponese seiko. Non mi si è mai fermato anche non mettendolo per 24h, quindi la riserva di carica è più che buona.
Ricordatevi che si tratta di un automatico, vedo recensioni negative "perchè si ferma se non lo metti" e mi viene da piangere. Se non sapete cos'è un orologio automatico allora compratene uno da 10 euro dai cinesi che è la stessa cosa... Certe recensioni fanno rabbrividire.
Parliamo della sostanza: è molto meno pacchiano di quello che può sembrare. L'oro c'è, ma è molto bello e non risulta eccessivo. Il blu è molto scuro, non si nota nemmeno se non sotto la luce diretta. Il peso è importante, da l'idea di essere costruito con qualità. La leggibilità del quadrante e della data è ottima, la luminescenza nella media. Ho orologi che costano il doppio e hanno una fluorescenza davvero pessima in confronto a questo invicta, quindi non vedo perchè lamentarmi.
Fa la sua bella figura e viene notato, l'occhio dell'interlocutore cade inevitabilmente sul polso e la cosa è molto positiva. Il quadrante è forse un po' piccolino, come tutti i diver, ma adatto ad un polso normale.
L'ho preso come muletto estivo, anche per le sue doti di impermeabilità e sono molto contento. Tra l'altro mi sta piacendo così tanto che da muletto estivo credo che lo promuoverò a orologio da tutti i giorni, anche per le stagioni fredde. E' davvero elegante, e si adatta sia ad essere indossato con camicia e giacca per occasioni formali, ma anche in spiaggia con una semplice maglietta non stona affatto. L'abbinamento di colori lo rende davvero adatto a qualsiasi occasione e non passa mai inosservato.
